Things I am thankful for this Christmas:

* A Poinsettia On My Table
My aunt Eva used to bring me one every year. She has been gone for over 15 years and I still think of it and miss her. This year I bought one and I am cheered just as much as if Eva had brought it to me.
* A Jar of Peppermint Candy
It’s just a simple thing of beauty giving us plenty of Christmas pleasure.
* The Carols
We’re listening to them each day. There’s a wealth of promise and praise of Glory To God.
* Grandchildren
We’re grandparents for the first time this year! And we’re thrilled.
* One Woolrich Pull-Over Sweater
Found in the used clothing we were sorting for CAM.
* The Sidekick
That rusty, old four-wheel drive puddle jumper will get us from here to there and back all winter, especially since my little red Buick needs a new transmission.

Tell us what you’re thankful for this year.

  1. Hmmm, where to start… so many things to be thankful for! A warm house when it's cold and blustery outside, candles burning, health, family and friends, and much much more! I know that's kind of vague. I loved your list, esp the simple pleasures like a jar of peppermint candy.


  2. After seeing a bad accident along the way; I am doubling grateful for our safe travels last evening. For a new boiler that keeps us toasty warm. The bright sunlight on a white earth is a beautful scene and refreshes the soul. My own cozy home with my family all around me.


  3. Something I am thankful for is the Christmas cards and pictures we have been getting in the mail each day… and I am especially thankful for the one Christmas letter we have gotten so far…from Grandpas Sid's.
    I enjoy the letters the most 🙂


  4. We've been tuning in to this grateful heart idea just lately. I'm thankful for friends. We've learned to know a lot of new friends this year. It's really stretched us in good ways, and also in ways we would not have chosen. So I am grateful for a Father who knows what we need.
